Initial thoughts: The lens is horrendous! But a resize and a bit of pp never hurt anyone!

Total fail! I completely didn't send this lens on, so sorry everyone! It's time to restart the challenge!

Any progress Ed ? or is the thought of such a challenge making you delay the inevitable ? Laughing

Embarassed OMG, is it that long since I received the lens! I've just gone to check and it is sitting patiently in my lens cupboard. I'll take some shots over the Christmas holidays and then pass it on to someone else.

Peter (peterqd) asked me some time ago if I would take on the administration of this challenge, and the two other lenses that are in circulation, and I agreed to do so. Since then I've been busy with work projects etc but I'll endeavour to resurrect the challenges in the New Year.

Thanks for reminding me! Smile

What has happened with the challenge and the lenses ?

Yeah, sometimes I wonder whatever happened to my Focal 28mm. I wouldn't mind getting it back.
